The JBBM20 is a solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 2017. It is a Signature guitar of J. B. Brubaker of the American Christian metalcore band August Burns Red. It is produced in Indonesia.

The JBBM20 is based on the RGA series. It was introduced at the annual winter NAMM show in January 2017.

The JBBM20 features a mahogany body bolted to a maple and purpleheart neck with a 24-fret ebony fingerboard with white dot position markers. Components include a Gibraltar Standard II fixed bridge, dual EMG active humbucking pickups and locking Gotoh tuning machines. It features a green finish with a pair of diagonal white stripes running across the body.

For 2019 the mahogany body was replaced by nyatoh.

While the model was shown at the NAMM show in January 2017, it did not go on sale until autumn of 2017.
